Erin Moran, who once played Joanie Cunningham on the 1970s show "Happy Days," has apparently been facing some pretty unhappy times and things just got worse afterwards. It has just been announced that the actress is now homeless.

The former "Happy Days" star was allegedly thrown from her trailer home which she shared with her husband and mother-in-law. After the mother became tired of her "hard partying ways," the former actress was kicked out. Moran and husband Steve Fleischmann have since begun "hopping" from hotel to hotel, with some critics making similar complaints as Moran's mother-in-law.
"On several occasions the hotel management warned Erin to curb her unruly behavior," The Enquirer reported about a cheap hotel in Corydon. "But they finally had enough of her temper and demanded that she immediately leave the property."
"Happy Days" was first aired in 1974 and had a successful 10-year run on ABC before being pulled off the air. The show depicted a picturesque vision of the 1950s and '60s and was, at one time, a popular primetime success.
Moran played Joanie, the kid sister of one of the main characters Richard Cunningham, played by Ron Howard. Beginning as a pesky pre-teen at the start of the show, Joanie develops in to a well-liked young lady later on and marries another lead character in the season finale.
"Life hasn't been kind to Erin since the foreclosure of her home," a family friend said according to a Radar report. "She and Steve moved in with his ailing mother at the trailer park a few weeks back. Erin is like an angel to her mother-in-law. She cooks and cleans for her and takes care of her personal hygiene."
Apparently the mother in-law did not agree.
